THE NIGHT ALIVE

By Conor McPherson
Directed by Tracy Brigden

OCT 10–NOV 1, 2015 (Main Stage)

Tommy has made a mess of things: he’s living low in Dublin, just getting by on odd jobs, and doing his best to avoid his wife and kids. But when he rescues a mysterious woman, an escape out of the squalor is possible – if only they can shake their checkered pasts. This award-winning play from the author of The Seafarer (City 2009) ripples with humor and heart and wrestles with the complicated task of being human.
